Lyrics OH WHAT DID DEL-A-WARE BOY,
WHAT DID DELAWARE?
WHAT DID DEL-A-WARE BOY,
WHAT DID DELAWARE?
SHE WORE A BRAND NEW JERSEY,
SHE WORE A BRAND NEW JERSEY.
SHE WORE A BRAND NEW JERSEY,
THAT'S WHAT SHE DID WEAR.

ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR!

OH, WHY DID CALI-FON-IA,
WHY DID CALI-FON?
WHY DID CALI-FON-IA,
WAS SHE ALL ALONE?

SHE CALLED TO SAY HA-WA-YA,
SHE CALLED TO SAY HA-WA-YA.
SHE CALLED TO SAY HA-WA-YA,
THAT'S WHY SHE DID CALL.

UNO, DEIS, TRE, QUATTRO!

OH WHAT DID MISSI SIP BOY,
WHAT DID MISSI SIP?
WHAT DID MISSI SIP BOY,
THROUGH HER PRETTY LIPS?

SHE SIPPED A MINNE SOTA,
SHE SIPPED A MINNE SOTA.
SHE SIPPED A MINNE SOTA,
THAT'S WHAT SHE DID SIP.

WHERE HAS OREGON BOY,
WHERE HAS OREGON?
IF YOU WAN AL-ASK-A,
AL-ASK-A WHERE SHE'S GONE.

SHE WENT TO PAY HER TEXAS,
SHE WENT TO PAY HER TEXAS.
SHE WENT TO PAY HER TEXAS,
THAT'S WHERE SHE HAS GONE.

WELL HOW DID WIS-CON-SIN BOY?
SHE STOLE A NEW-BRASS-KEY,
TOO BAD THAT ARKAN SAW BOY,
AND SO DID TENNE-SEE.

IT MADE POOR FLORI-DI BOY,
IT MADE POOR FLORI-DI, YOU SEE.
SHE DIED IN MISS-OUR-I BOY,
SHE DIED IN MISS-OUR-I.
OH WHAT DID DEL-A-WARE BOY,
WHAT DID DELAWARE?

Lyrics I'LL GIVE MY HAND
TO THOSE WHO CANNOT SEE
THE SUNSHINE
OR THE FALLING RAIN.
I'LL SING MY SONG
TO CHEER THE WEARY ALONG,
FOR I MAY NEVER
PASS THIS WAY AGAIN!
I'LL SHARE MY FAITH
WITH EVERY TROUBLED HEART,
SO I SHALL NOT
HAVE LIVED IN VAIN.
I'LL GIVE MY HAND,
I'LL SING MY SONG,
I'LL SHARE MY FAITH,
BECAUSE I KNOW,
THAT THE TIME IS NOW
TO FULFILL EACH VOW,
FOR I MAY NEVER
PASS THIS WAY AGAIN!

Lyrics verse:
HERE WE ARE TOGETHER
FOR THE UMPTYUMPH TIME,
YET THE THRILL OF SEEING YOU
IS ALWAYS NEW.
I'D LOVE TO TELL YOUR MOTHER,
YOUR FATHER AND YOUR BROTHER
THAT YOU'RE MY DREAM OF DREAMS
COME TRUE.

Chorus:
I WANNA GO HOME WITH YOU,
I WANNA GO HOME WITH YOU,
I WANT TO MEET THE FAMILY
I'M SURE THAT THEY'LL APPROVE
OF ME,
I WANNA GO HOME WITH YOU
AND NOBODY ELSE WILL DO.
KISSING GOOD-NIGHT
AT YOUR FRONT DOOR
MAKES ME LOVE YOU
MORE AND MORE,
I WANNA GO HOME WITH YOU.

Lyrics verse:
SOMEONE
THAT I BELONG TO
DOESN'T BELONG TO ME
SOMEONE
WHO CAN'T BE FAITHFUL
KNOWS THAT I HAVE TO BE.
WONDER IF I AM WRONG
TO GIVE HER MY LOYALTY.
WHY SHOULD I
BE A LONE SOUL?
WHY CAN'T I
OWN MY OWN SOUL?

Chorus:
ALONE FROM NIGHT TO NIGHT,
YOU'LL FIND ME,
TOO WEAK TO BREAK
THE CHAINS THAT BIND ME
I NEED NO SHACKLES
TO REMIND ME,
I'M JUST A PRISONER OF LOVE.
FOR ONE COMMAND
I STAND AND WAIT NOW,
FROM ONE WHO'S MASTER
OF MY FATE NOW,
I CAN'T ESCAPE,
FOR IT'S TOO LATE NOW,
I'M JUST A PRISONER OF LOVE.

WHAT'S THE GOOD OF MY CARING
IF SOMEONE IS SHARING
THOSE ARMS WITH ME?
ALTHOUGH SHE HAS ANOTHER,
I CAN'T HAVE ANOTHER,
FOR I'M NOT FREE.

SHE'S IN MY DREAMS,
AWAKE OR SLEEPING,
UPON MY KNEES
TO HER I'M CREEPING
MY VERY LIFE
IS IN HER KEEPING,
I'M JUST A PRISONER OF LOVE.

Lyrics SOMEBODY CARES,
WHEN YOUR HEART
IS FEELING BLUE,
AS YOU CLIMB
YOUR LONELY STAIR,
SOMEBODY CARES!
SOMEBODY KNOWS,
WHEN EACH DREAM
FALLS THROUGH,
THOUGH YOU THINK
IT NEVER SHOWS,
SOMEBODY KNOWS!

SOMEBODY HEARS,
EVERY WISH YOU MAKE,
AS YOU FALL ASLEEP
IN TEARS,
SOMEBODY HEARS!

SOMEBODY KNEW,
HOW I NEEDED
SOMEBODY'S LOVE,
THEN I LOOKED
AND THERE WAS YOU,
SOMEBODY KNEW!

SOMEBODY
HEARD MY PRAYERS,
SOMEBODY CARES!
